My wife and I went last Friday. Ditto to everything that Imagen said. Food was nothing spectacular but wasn't unpleasant either. I was hoping it would have a mongolian grill like the buffet in James Center, but no luck. Seemed pricey for what you get and we would have been better off just going to the China Express at Safeway, or better yet, the other asian place that recently opened across the parking lot in the new building (sorry, can't remember the name). Two of us with a modest tip was $42. As Billy Bob said in Bad Santa, "Hey, they can't all be winners." I really doubt if we'll be back. By the way, I spent most of my meal reminiscing about all the good times I had at Blockbuster. Seriously, I did have good times there.

Me and my girlfriend went to check this place out after eating at AAA Buffet and not closed Azain Buffet to see what it was like. Well I can honestly say that I will NVER go there again!. The food section was not new at all and could be found at other asain buffets. The food did not taste very good either! The desert section was really limited having only 4 types of cakes and apple on the buffet line. The ice cream machine was the same as anywhere else. Vanilla, Chocolate, and swirl. You should only come to this place if you have a craving for crab legs or Korean Short ribs. The Korean short ribs were ok at best myself being Korean. It was $35 for the both of us and we could have eating at a variety of other places and have gotten a better variety and quality of food!

Perhaps they feel it's not worth the prices they are charging?
